He’s always been a car guy and is fond of all kinds of racing, the F1 and performance car world, and keeping up with cars in general. Ben’s also quite the adrenaline junkie and one day, he’d like to give wingsuit base jumping a shot. Apart from his work with CAG, Ben is also a videographer–and a foodie–and his youtube channel (@sirbenv) combines both of those facts! He draws a lot of inspiration from Bach, Bobby Flay, Bowie, and Warhol.
